CFAC Calgary THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF CANADA (IP.SCOPAU Saturday: forCommunioB Goals not clearly defined Key 73 may By ELEANOR BLAU New York Times Set-vice NEW YORK What was heralded as the biggest evan- gelical drive ever undertaken appears to have fizzled. The drive, called Key 73, was launched with consid- erable fanfare eight months ago by more than 140 church groups in the United States and Canada with a goal of confronting every person in the two-countries with Gospel'of Jesus Christ." Even the most .enthusias- tic participants now concede that they will not come close to achieving that goal. For one thing, the year-long cam- paign failed to make exten- sive use of mass media, as planned, because ct finan- cial problems. Only of an expected billion has been raised for the media effort. The only major program put out by the campaign's national head- quarters in St. Louis has been the half-hour television spe- cial that launched the drive in January. SUFFERED Rev. Dr. Theodore A. Rae- deke, executive director of Key 73, suggests that fund- raising suffered because peo- ple contributed to local Key 73 efforts instead. However, reports from various parts of the country indicate that most local efforts also suffered fi- nancially. Participants offer few rea- sons for the general lack of impact, aside from money problems. Some say that, with its stress on local ini- tiative, the campaign found- ered for lack of organization. "The goals of Key 73 were not so clearly defined that everyone coufd see exactly what he could do." a Hous- ton minister reported. Anoth- er pastor there said he just didn't know what went wrong. "When you've got the Cam- pus Crusade that gets 150.000 people in Dallas, you can't say that mass evangelism is he added. A New Jersey minister ob- served that much of the plan- ning was "not urban-orien- ted." And a New York par- ticipant called promotion ef- forts there feeble. HELPED Ironically, one source of publicity has been Jewish leaders who warned that ef- forts to convert Jews would set back a decade of re- laxed Jewish-Christian rela- tions. Statements from a num- ber of Rabbis and assurances by some Key 73 leaders that Jews would not be special targets of evangelism kept the campaign in the news for some time. "I think their re- action helped our Dr. Raedeke remarked in an in- terview. Probably the biggest im- pact of the campaign has been among people already involved in church activity. "There was interraction be- tween groups with no track record of working reports Rev. Daniel A. Bar- ret of Chicago, who served on the now dismantled mass media committee of the cam- paign. Evangelist vis Canadian evangelist Terry Winters from Vancouver will conduct a Key 73 evangelistic rally here Sept. 23. The p.m. rally is sched- uled for First Baptist Church. Rev. Keith Churchill ex- plained Mr. Winters will visit the Baptist church as part of a youth emphasis weekend for city and district young people. The evangelistic rally has been planned in conjunction with other Lethbridge Key 73 activities, Mr. Churchill said. Mel Israelson, Lethbridge Pentecostal Tabernacle pas- tor reports some ''good con- tacts" resulted from the Key 73 literature distribution pro- gram this spring. A paperback Bible portion entitled Touched By The Fire was delivered door-to-door by 14 sponsoring churches throughout the city. The Pen- tecostal church, in addition, delivered an evangelistic edi- tion of their denominational magazine along with the Bibles. Mr. Israelson said he thinks Key 73 participants need to- be mere aggressive. Noting clergymen already have a full load of spiritual duties, Mr. Israelson said it will take greater effort and concern for sharing the Gospel by lay- men to make Key 73 prog- grams effective. "Lay people need stirring. This is the secret of the early church. The Book of Acts is a grass roots movement among Mr. Is- raelson said. Noting a reluctance by old- er people approached during the Key 73 doorstep blitz, Mr. Israelson said workers found persons under 30 received the literature more openly, re- flecting a spiritual search. Major Joan Pierce of the Salvation Army reports Cita- del troops will mobilize dur- ing October and November for a Key 73 visitation pro- gram. Old time religion is not a marketable commodity, ac- cording to several Lethbridge retail outlets. And, if the low degree of interest shown by Gospel salesmen in city churches is an indication, no one is in much of a hurry to pitch for God in the market place. At a January Key 73 plan- ning session, laymen suggest- ed a Gospel outreach at city shopping malls. No further action has been taken on the proposal reports Mel Israel- son, Lethbridge Pentecostal Tabernacle pastor. DIVIDED City mall managers are divided in their attitude to- ward religious meetings in a retail trading area. "I've no objection to a bake sale or ticket said Dave Wilson, Centre Village Mall manager. "But I do draw the line when someone wants to conduct a religious meet- -ing. Any sort of public dem- onstration would impede cus- tomer access to our retail marketing operation." Gary Seher. College Shop- ping Mall manager, echoed similar sentiments. He said College Mall policy is to avoid political and religious meet- ings on the property. Holiday Village manager, Art Batty, said he would be happy to co-operate with Key 73 programs. imagine the service would be on a Sunday, al- though I think the churches could get a better response from the public during regul- ar mall business Mr. Batty said. "We would be most happy to co-operate, and we will give all the assistance we can." City clerk John Gerla ex- plained there is no city by- law affecting religious activi- ties in a public place. It will be up to individu- al property owners to decide upon permission for any re- ligious meetings in the shop- ping he said.

Koehler, 33. of Spruce Grove has been appointed to the faculty of the Lutheran Theo- logical Seminary here.

To date all Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod pastors have been trained in the United States, either at St. Louis, Mo. or Springfield, 111. VANCOUVER (CP1 Rev. Raymond de Coceola says things are changing in the Ar- ctic and laments that the book he wrote about how things used to be was censored. "The publishers cut too much out of it." the 61-year-old priest said of his book Ayorama. writ- ten after he had spent 12 years among the Eskimos as an Ob- late missionary. "They said it contained too much blood and is stupid because there was nothing in it which wasn't true." The book, written in 1954, is being released soon in a paper- back edition. Father de Coceola said the Eskimos he knew lived as they had for thousands of years. He wrote about them and the way they lived before the military invaded their land and before big corporations began mineral exploration in the Arctic. "There is a new breed of Es- kimo these days that doesn't have to follow the ways of old." he said. "The things the old Es- kimos did, they had to do to survive." CHURCH APPROVED BOOK However, if the Oxford Uni- versity Press censored Father de Coccola's book, the Roman Catholic Church approved it with hardly a murmur. "The Archbishop of Van- couver had me change the first page, but that was he said. The priest lived among the Tom Cod Easters. the People of the Musk-Ox, and the People at the Back of the Earth, to name a few of the tribes at Bathurst Inlet, below Victoria Island. The book he wrote reflects that murder was common, can- nibalism sometimes a necessity, killing of female infants a cus- tom and the dumping of old people behind on the trail made sense. Three times the priest relates j he became lost in the wilder- jness and at least once had to talk his Eskimo guide out of murdering him. Attacks of scurvy and a steady diet of fish and caribou meat finally affected his health so seriously that his superiors ordered him to leave the Arctic. But he said one of the things he learned and will always re- member from the years in the Arctic is the Es- kimo word meaning "that's life." CHRISTIAN SCIENCE 1203 4 AVE. S.
